Catching up...article examines resurrection artifact controversy

This article, which appeared in a recent TIME magazine, discusses controversy over whether a newly discovered/translated artifact indicates that before Jesus, Jews were already telling stories with the notion of a 3rd-day resurrection in them. The article reads like an editorial, and is commendable in the way in which it presents some of the issues in translation and Biblical criticism so that they are accessible to an audience without training. It also presents context of other newsworthy artifacts dealing with the issue.
